So I've decided to put off writing a paper that should really already be written to update some music on here. I'm really trying to make this blog breathe once again.
Firstly comes Thao With The Get Down Stay Down. Apparently this band has been around a little while but I've only recently begun to listen to them. And I must say, I was skeptical at first; but I really like the sound now. I'm putting up a single from their 2008 album We Brave beet Stings and All.
Thao - Bag of Hammers
Next is a band on of my band mates turned me on to. Neon Trees gained some spotlight after opening a few times for The Killers. This led to a record deal with Mercury Records and finally their new album Habits. Neon Trees, from Provo, Utah has an interesting sound that make me feel like I've heard the songs before, but not in a jaded way. Definitely looking to big things for these guys. Here's their video for the single Animal of the album Habits
...Oh and hooray for female drummers!
